Students from the Cairo American College arrived on Sunday March 24 at ESAF’s Shabramont Shelter (Egyptian Society of Animal Friends) to volunteer as part of the college’s “week without walls” program.
Several students joined the weekly mobile clinic for the horses in the Pyramids area, handing out food and providing care to 75 horses — treating wounds, deworming, and assisting with dental care.
Some of the students stayed behind at the shelter to watch the presentation “Alternatives to Animals in Experiments and Education”, part of ESAF’s program to promote alternatives to animal testing.
Returning from the Pyramids clinic, the students devoted the rest of the day to doing some painting and maintenance work, along with grooming and playing with the animals.
That evening, the ESAF vet and the GIZA Veterinary Department continued their work inspecting GIZA pet shops. During recent inspections, they found exotic animals being kept illegally. Following their report to the Director of the GIZA Veterinary Department, action was taken regarding the exotic animals.
